India shows Exit Door to Maggi

New Delhi, June 5: Finally giving in after various food safety agencies found Maggi noodles "unsafe" and states banned it, Nestle India has decided to take the product off the shelves temporarily.

However, the company is still insisting that Maggi is "safe" according to its own tests. Nestle India will hold a press conference in this regard at noon today.

A press release from Nestle India said- "Unfortunately, recent developments and unfounded concerns about the product have led to an environment of confusion for the consumer, to such an extent that we have decided to withdraw the product off the shelves, despite the product being safe. We promise that the trusted MAGGI Noodles will be back in the market as soon as the current situation is clarified".

The issue came to the forefront after Maggi samples from Uttar Pradesh were allegedly found contaminated with lead and had excess of Monosodium Glutamate (MSG). Many states including Delhi, Kerala and Uttar Pradesh have banned Nestle Maggi noodles. Bihar government is likely to ban the two-minute noodles today in the state. The Delhi government has given 15 days to Nestle and has asked it to withdraw the existing stock from market.
